Here is the information on Maple worksheets. You may try the demonstration worksheet.

Then do the following worksheets as these topics are discussed in class. WS1, on Slope Fields. WS2, on Numerical Solutions. WS3, on Forced Oscillations. WS4, on Linear Systems of Differential Equations. WS5, on Series Solutions for Variable Coefficient Equations.(Note that the following schedule is only approximate. Often a particular topic will spill over into a subsequent lecture.)
